Understanding how different religious philosophies define "person" or "human" also involves asking questions about the relationship each faith proposes to have with the Divine Spirit or God or Allah. Since the concept of "person" is discussed only in the contexts of modern religious thought, it is useful to clarify a difference between modern and orthodox religions. This paper will explore the differing conceptions of "personhood," as well as provide brief descriptions of the primary guiding characteristics of Judaism, Islam, and Christian philosophy and how "person" is situated in relation to these tenets.
